    Looking for an injury lawyer on the Isle of Barra


    What if I need an injury lawyer on the Isle of Barra?

    The Isle of Barra is a predominantly Gaelic speaking island and apart from the adjacent island of Vatersay, to which it is connected by a causeway, is the southernmost inhabited island of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.

    Anyone, whether staff or visitors, that pass through there, could purchase something anywhere in the country and end up with faulty goods that cause them harm and they may be entitled to use an injury lawyer on the Isle of Barra.

    If a product is unsafe for its intended use you could need an injury lawyer on the Isle of Barra

    There is a legal duty to ensure the products are safe, this onus falls onto the shoulders of manufacturers, producers and importers.  If there are risks involved with any product they must:

    • Continually monitor the safety of their products
    • Take action if a safety issue is found
    • Warn consumers about the potential risks
    • Make sure the information they provide about the risks is easily understandable by the consumer

    They need to take an active approach towards the safety of their products or someone may use an injury lawyer against them.

    Does the onus always fall on the retailer?

    Wholesalers and retailers do not normally have any responsibility to the consumer regarding the safety of the products they have sold them unless:

    • They knowingly sold an unsafe product
    • They must reveal who the manufacturer, producer or importer is

    If they did know a product was unsafe, there would be a case for an injury lawyer against them.

    When can’t I make a claim?

    There are some circumstances in which you could not use an injury lawyer, amongst these are:

    • If scientific evidence first comes to light after the goods have been manufactured
    • If the goods have been interfered with in any way and it is that interference that has caused the fault

    The unsafe product should be reported

    If you have an unsafe product, many more consumers might have purchased the same thing and you may all be at risk from the same problem.  This is the main reason that if you do buy a dangerous item, you should report it to your local Trading Standards Officer.  They have the power to seize goods to check them for safety and if they find them to be a risk they can:

    • Ask the courts for permission to destroy all the goods
    • Prosecute the guilty party
    • Stop the sale of the goods
    • Order the recall of any goods already sold

    If you have been injured by faulty goods, you should talk to Accident Advice Helpline, not just any old injury lawyer on the Isle of Barra, on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.  One of the friendly advisors will discuss your claim with you and take you through the necessary process to ensure you are awarded the compensation you deserve.

    On our website there is a 30-second test which will give you some guidance as to the amount you may receive.
